This is the terrifying moment a group of yobs had a fight inside a McDonald’s before one pulled out a huge knife. 

The brawl broke out at a McDonald’s in Hackney, London, yesterday in front of several shocked customers. 

It comes after a violent 36 hours in London as six people were stabbed and a woman was found dead near a railway line. 

In December it was reported that Met Police responded to 13,405 incidents involving knives in just twelve months, with 106 people murdered last year. 

Footage shows the gang – who all appear to be young men – wrestling with each other before one pulls out a crutch and uses it as a weapon. 

Members of staff are forced to intervene when the fight escalates into an all-in row in the middle of the restaurant floor – with one male worker being pushed backwards by the men.

Punches are thrown and shouts can be heard – as one involved in the incident shouts ‘What are you doing bro? Leave bro.’ 

Meanwhile, one of the yobs involved in the fight pulls out a massive knife, according to The Sun.  

The row then spills out to the ordering counter area and eventually the group of thugs leave the premises. 

In the video, which was shared on Instagram, one social media user commented: ‘Absolute cowards. I’d bet each one of them would run a mile if confronted one on on. Hyenas hunting in packs.’
